Pat Thommesen has landed her dream job at Bradford-based Nicholas Associates, part of Stafforce.

After being a client of the company, she is now their Commercial Business Manager and she certainly has empathy with employers and understands the pressures that they are under to recruit the right staff, as she’s walked in their shoes.

Pat comments: “It is so exciting to be working in my new role. I know what it’s like for managers in companies who are working under pressure and simply don’t have the time to spend on reading lots of CVs and interviewing dozens of candidates. My skills also lie in being able to tap into what a candidate is really like and match this with what employers are looking for. Ultimately it’s about providing a solution that works for both parties.”

Pat first came across the Relay Recruitment arm of the Stafforce business,when she worked for Bradford-based conveyancers Hammonds Direct. She was always impressed with the quality of the commercial candidates the company supplied and as a result of this, she chose to use the company’s services again when she joined Provident Personal Credit as Customer Contact Centre Manager.

Recognising her potential, Nicholas Associates appointed Pat to the client-facing post, with a remit to further enhance the company’s commercial recruitment services.

In her new role, Pat will work with companies across a wide range of sectors to provide the right calibre of staff to employers across the region. As a recruitment business, Nicholas Associates prides itself on building relationships with candidates and clients to make sure that we deliver the best staffing and business solutions, which is exactly what Pat liked about the company!

Laura Cousins, who recruited Pat and is delighted she is part of the team, said: “It’s great to have Pat on board. She knows how hard our company works to make sure we get the correct calibre of candidates and match them with the right roles. We recognised that Pat’s expertise as a client in the financial and call centre sector would be invaluable in helping us to help drive forward our business, particularly on the commercial side. It was really important that we could fill the position with someone with that level of understanding.”

Pat, who lives in Ilkleyand describes herself as a & lsquo;sociable character, a real people-person’ says that good recruitment comes down to three things: & lsquo;transparency’, & lsquo;honesty’, and & lsquo;value for time’- not just money as employers are so busy.
